Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

I have never been a big Harry Potter fan and I haven´t even read book six and seven yet. But the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry might actually change this. He is a genius, at least when it comes to the narration of these books (I guess he is a genius in every other aspect as well, but lets just stick to the audiobooks for now). The way he uses his voice and how the whole audiobook is produced adds a whole new dimension to these stories. I love listening to them.

 

The Chamber of Secrets will never be my favorite Potter, though, and I can´t even say why that is. Probably because Hermione is missing for a good part of the book, I always feel there is something missing when she isn´t around. On the other hand there is Gilderoy Lockhart, who I have the slight suspicion about that he might be Reinhold Messner in disguise (Lockharts "Year with the Yeti" book made me chuckle).

 

So five blazing stars for the narration, 4 stars for the story, 4.5 stars overall.

 

I can´t wait for the Prisoner of Akzaban, my favorite Potter so far (both book and movie) and I can´t wait to start listening to it maybe today, maybe tomorrow morning.

It´s simply not possible to give this book less than 5 stars. The story is magical and Stephen Fry´s narration is perfection.

Wow.... This story really threw me off. From suspecting Draco Malfoy to the main character Harry Potter... Every evidence just throws me off!! It is only until the end where this book shocks you with the main problem!
